About this show

Lilia Skala broke the barriers of her day. Austria's first woman architect and a European stage star, Lilia had it all before the the Nazis rose to power. Immigrating to America penniless, she works her way out of a zipper factory to an acting career culminating in Oscar, Emmy & Golden Globe nominations. Libby Skala captures her grandmother's indomitable spirit in a heart-warming show that explores the influence a grandmother can have on a young woman's life. "Marvelous!" -The NY Times

Performed in honor of a National Register plaque unveiling with special tribute by Sidney Poitier.
